Ainsworth: Chance to shine

8 October 2013

Gareth Ainsworth says tonight’s JPT tie with Bristol City is an opportunity for some of his players to stake a claim for Saturday's league game against Torquay United.

Following the 2-1 defeat at home to Burton Albion, Ainsworth told the press he may give playing time to those who have been on the sidelines recently.
  Children (7 and under): £1.Juniors (8-18): £5, Young adults (19-25): £8, Seniors (60 and over): £10, Adults: £12,  Tickets are still available for tonight's game and are priced at 

  Former Wanderers loanees Frank Fielding, Elliot Parish and Marlon Pack could all return, with City loanee Lewis Dunk potentially making his debut for the Robins after joining from Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion last week.

He said: "We are going to be big underdogs. It's probably the biggest team left in the draw that could have come here. Sometimes we work better like that."

The Chairboys enjoyed a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Exeter City in the last round and Blues' boss will be hoping for more of the same at Adams Park as the Blues look to reach the last eight of the Southern Section of the competition.

The 40-year-old said: "Often with muscle injuries if you miss Saturday you'll more than likely miss Tuesday as well, so I won't risk Dean because I know how big he is for us."

Ainsworth also revealed that Wanderers are likely to be without top scorer Dean Morgan (thigh) again for the visit of the League 1 outfit.

"There were boys on the bench who were itching for a game and it might be the right time to give a few a shout and see where we are in the squad."

"There will be a few faces out there who deserve their chance - there will be some new faces playing on Tuesday.

He said: "It's a no-pressure game but I want to do well in the JPT so we'll have a strong side out.
